I have a 94 jeep grand Cherokee limited that is my baby. However it will not start. The check engine light is not on and just replaced the starter 2 weeks ago. it wras running fine with no signs of problems. I had to go to work that was 25 miles away and it was doing fine. when i got into the jeep to head home it would not start. it is turning over but not catching fire. what could it be.
Yes, the truck has over a half a tank of gas in it. every now and then when it did run we would have to put it in neutral to get it to crank or push it a little harder into park to get it to crank. it does attempt to turn over just seams like it is not catching fire.

This sounds like a Neutral Safety Switch issue. Moving the shifter around might solve it temporarily, but it needs attention.
Outside of this, you would at least need to tell us if (a) you have spark, (b) you have fuel at the rail, and/or (c) your ASD relay is engaged in order for us to really help you begin to isolate the problem.
Does the check engine light illuminate for 3 seconds when you turn the key to the ON position? If it passes the bulb check when you turn the key on, thius means your PCM is not dead.
It may have a code that doesn't turn the light on
(1) Cycle the ignition key On - Off - On - Off - On
within 5 seconds.
(2)The check engine light will start to flash quickly with a small pause in between then a medium pause to indicate the next number in the two digit number and then a long pause before the next set of flashing for the next code. Repeat as many times as it takes to read the codes.
(3) A DTC number 55 will always be the last code
to be displayed. This indicates the end of all stored
codes. After code 55 has been displayed, the test is over.
